Capitalist Tool

I find it endlessly fascinating: If you decide that you want to release your control over the copyright for something, it serves to earn endless amounts of cash for other people. Alberto Korda really deserves a few bucks for lending the endless use of his photo to people who were more than happy to pocket 100% of the proceeds. I think the minute he exerts control over his copyright, it would all grind to a halt, since "revolutionaries" don't typically like to split the profits.
I also like the fact that a ruthless child-man murderer can become someone's hero. All in the context, I guess.
